What was your first ever FA cup game?
Mine was Saints v Arsehole 1978. My dad took me and we sat in the west stand at the Dell. I think we got beat 2 - 0 but I was hooked anyway. My old man was a skate but said I should support saints so I could go and see them as I grew up because they were my local side. He was a proper gent and I miss him every day. R.i.P. Lowy.

Not really ever had much love for derby but I dont want to see them go out of business and so i signed this petition, many clubs fans chipped in for us when we were in administration we should all help those in trouble.

Its simple just sign the petition and confirm by e mail.

Man City game
by Saintsforeverj at 23:17 17 Jan 2022

Bit of a free hit on Saturday. Looking forward to it though. Game very nearly sold out. Should be a good atmosphere, under the lights for a later kick off. We nearly beat them up at their place, after not being given a clear penalty. They are clear at the top, so may be due a defeat, after a run of victories? We should have a few more players back too. Let's hope we can get a surprise result.

Unless I have missed something and not reading the Southampton website correctly, I am surprised that the tickets for this game have not been announced or gone on sale yet with only 3 weeks to go. I think the TV matches have been selected unless I am mistaken.

Seems to be difficult to read a story these days unless you pay them to subscribe, it is disgraceful how that paper has been run down over the past few years, some moight dismiss it as being a poor over the years, but it is important that a city the size of Southampton should have a regional paper both in print and online that is accessible to all.

If they improved the content then they would not need to charge people to subscribe and would be able to survive and prosper.

If Ralph is doing such a good job.....

Why is that no other team wants him? Hes not even mentioned as a runner for the Everton job.
In the last 12months Everton, Watford and Spurs have changed manger twice, while Villa, Man U, chelsea, Crystal Palace, Wolves, Norwich and Newcastle have also sacked their manager. So plenty of opportunities.

The only credible link was Norwich wanting him.

What a surprise. Another one bites the dust at Everton. Stupid appointment in the first place, when the fans were against him from the start. Some owners are so stupid aren't they. And Everton? Well they ought to stop looking for immediate success, stop buying jumped up players on high wages, and build a team over time with a manager that is given time. Not that I care about Everton at all, but it does show me that I'm glad our new owners aren't like theirs.

Do you go or watch the games. Because a lot of you seem to have opinions that are from such a blindsind it amazes me. JWP has been one of our best players, puts in 100% every week and yet you moan.

My take on the visit to Wolves.
by A1079 at 10:42 16 Jan 2022

My trip to Wolves proved as fruitless as all my other visits to the ground (putting aside one draw that I had seen).

Your view and assessment of the game is really dictated by which 3rd of the pitch you are sat adjacent to as the long stretch of fans rather than a contained area really does impact on your view of the game and getting any vocal support going - presumably this is why they and Villa do this - perhaps a lesson for our own club on how to maximise your own support and minimise the opposition fans.

I have to say I was sat at the end where JWP scored his wonder goal so my impression of the first half was that we had alot of the ball and some chances (which were difficult to see from where I was) but we failed to take them - plus a more than competent goalkeeper and uncompromising defence for Wolves who seem difficult to score against and is the foundation for their success and high position in the table.

Wolves are not exciting to watch but they are effective, efficient, clinical when they need to be and I have to say (begrudgingly) that their home vocal support was very good.

The game turned on the penalty decision which at the time did not surprise me that it was given but having seen it several times since I would say was the wrong decision. Interestingly before that I did think our defence looked "messy" and not entirely in control. Bednarek plays with his heart on his sleeve but he does not always make the right decisions, Salisu - as good as he can be always looks close to a sending off.

On the whole at half time the sense seemed at our end that we had not made the most of possession and chances.

The 2nd goal has to be down to poor decision making by Forster. Quite why he was where he was - stranded in No Mans Land - is difficult to understand. He made it easy for Wolves to score and effectively at that point you felt the game was up for Saints until of course the wonder free kick by JWP which set us up nicely almost rewarded by an off the bar attempt by Perraud (who I felt had had a good game and is growing into the team nicely).

Then Wolves go up the other end and get a third and all is over. Again a player that has not scored breaks his duck and drought against Saints - players or teams that are looking for their first goal or win must pray that they play Saints as we seem to be the team that keeps giving to opposition players desperate for a confidence booster.

How did I feel when I left the stadium? I kind of felt we did not deserve much and that we had not done enough, but this is when you realise that in the position you are allocated a seat effects your view because since hearing the comments on radio and TV and seeing highlights and playback we actually seem to be somewhat unfortunate not to get something out of the game (and I am more positive now about our game than I wast at 4:50pm yesterday) though the argument against that is - if you don't take your chances and you make silly errors (add in some questionable decisions) you will likely come away with nothing. In truth we did not play badly but we did not punish when we should have done.

What of Wolves? I have already said that they are effective and efficient and they have a good team and good home support. But and it is a big but - their propensity to go down and roll around as if hit by a steam roller and for it to go unpunished was some of the worst I have seen - though not unique sadly these days.

We didn't play badly but we did not play well enough. Romeu and Perraud and JWP worked hard. Our 3 in the centre of defence did not convince me and Forster having had a reasonably good spell seemed indecisive and culminating in being responsible for one goal at least. Redmond was back to doing lots of energetic running and going wide but his end product was poor, indeed our crossing overall lacked accuracy. I think we had something like 10 corners in the first half and I think only one troubled the goalkeeper. I could be wrong as it was at the other end.

I don't enjoy going to Wolves from a day out experience. Easy to get to and I had a good journey but there is little to do when you arrive and the view is not great. Yesterday was made slightly unpleasant by 2 Saints fans nearby who seemed to want to spend the whole match berating and threatening their fellow supporters creating a slightly uncomfortable feel. They were eventually removed and made to leave by stewards and Police and they missed JWP's goal as a result but quite what they hoped to achieve other than "p*ss off" everyone around them I am not sure.

We move on. The result was disappointing, the performance overall not bad but it showed up the need to be clinical when on the front foot. We will probably do enough to get across the line at the end of the day but equally we are not going to shake the coconuts off the tree.
